An article published April 25, "U.S. Sen. Johnson talks manufacturing, minimum wage hike," reported an inaccurate number of projected U.S. job losses that could stem from a federal minimum wage increase.

At a town hall talk in Janesville on Friday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson said a minimum wage increase could prompt the loss of 500,000 to 1 million jobs.
